Our lab started

  • 01 July 2018

As part of the Cyber Valley initiative, the Max Planck Research Group for Rationality Enhancement headed by Dr. Falk Lieder started today. The scientific mission of the group is to lay the cognitive and technological foundations for helping people become more effective. Our approach combines building and testing computational models of human learning and decision-making with developing intelligent systems for enhancing human rationality and evaluating them in field experiments. We are looking forward to five productive and successful years!

Neue Phänomene im magnetischen Nanokosmos

  • 22 June 2018

Beobachtung magnetischer Tröpfchen große Bedeutung für die magnetische Datenprozessierung

Forscher am Max-Planck-Institut für Intelligente Systeme in Stuttgart konnten mit Hilfe eines Röntgenmikroskops bei der Bildung von magnetische Tröpfchen ein völlig unerwartetes Verhalten beobachten. Wenn der Strom über einen Nanokontakts durch die magnetische Schicht fließt, breitet er sich wesentlich weiter aus, als die Ausdehnung des Nanokontakt es zulassen sollte. Bisher waren Forscher davon ausgegangen, dass nur die Fläche unterhalb des Nanokontakts reagiert. Doch Experimente haben die Wissenschaftler eines Besseren belehrt. Ein spannendes Phänomen in der Grundlagenforschung und von großer Bedeutung für die magnetische Datenprozessierung.
